What do you get when you combine a classic novel, a white space and three actors? White Boxx! Travelling horse dealer Michael Kohlhaas is apprehended at the Saxony-Brandenburg border and asked to produce a permit which is supposedly required to pass through. Since he does not have the required document, he is forced to leave two of his horses behind. A few weeks later, he returns to find the horses completely neglected and emaciated. Kohlhaas decides to take legal action, but fails because of intrigue, corruption and nepotism. Since he makes no progress through legal means, Kohlhaas embarks on a frenzied vendetta: "Let justice be done, though the world perish".
